On the Turner Chain of Lakes Outing in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, BC, Art Sprenkle and his daughter Collin were on the trip. As a requirement for her degree in English literature Collin wrote an essay entitled "Fly Fishing and the Female Form." She also created a video of the essay and after watching it I thought other people may also find it interesting. This is an excerpt from the introduction to the essay which she wrote to the instructor. "What you hold in your hands is much like a slippery fish, pulled from its safe aquatic home and unstable in your grasp. I have come to this paper with one primary question: why do I fly fish? It is not an academic question, nor strictly a personal one. Rather, it is a question regarding the human condition. My human condition, yes; but this paper works under the assumption that the investigation of one human condition may reveal certain mysteries of another." And here is a link to the video.
